1602 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Ontario
Also known as the bar whose name changes nightly according to the whims of the presiding barkeep, 1602 has all the creature comforts of a local: mellow lighting, well-loved couches, a chalkboard wall that invites inebriated scrawls and, best of all, a long bar backed by shelves so loaded with whisk(e)y, they’re beginning to buckle. What’ll it be? American rye? Fancy Highland scotch? Small-batch bourbon? Maybe save some room for a bit of everything, because 1602 has one of the city’s funkiest whisk(e)y programs.
